When it comes to anti-ageing products, it can be difficult to narrow down the best ones. We're advised to start an anti-ageing skincare routine in our mid-20s, but where do we start?

However, there's one serum that undeniably brings results, with loyal consumers and critics alike raving about it.

Lancôme Advanced Génifique has been one of the most critically successful skincare products in the industry ever since it's 2009 launch.

Leading the way in cutting-edge innovation and pioneering science, the product delivers skincare like no other using microbiome science. 

Lancôme Advanced Génifique was born out of over 197 formation trials, and has been tested on an amazing 4,000 women. There's a good reason why it has over 10,000 five-star reviews.

97 percent of women who use it would recommend it to others, and it's received over 170 awards over a decade on since it's launch.

It's hardly surprising that 25 million bottles of the serum have sold worldwide, that's one every six seconds.

Renowned for it's ability to activate the 10 signs of youth, it's efficiency is hard to deny. Younger-looking skin isn't as hard to accomplish as it seems, with products like these raising the bar for the skincare industry.

As the culmination of 15 years’ worth of research into the skin microbiome, a new Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum is born. It's withstood the test of time to become a beauty icon, and this new version promises to be timeless.

The serum wasn't created easily. Researchers have been captivated by the skin microbiome, which has formed the basis of 18 scientific publications and is a breakthrough in the skincare industry.

We're made up of 50 percent human cells and 50 percent bacterial cells, with our unique skin microbiome acting like our unique signature. It's a beneficial living ecosystem of microorganisms and a vital part of the skin surface.

Our skin's healthy appearance is essentially influenced by the balance of our microbiome.

A team of 50 experts, from physicists and clinicians to dermatologists and computer scientists, based in different global centres, has been involved in this research.

Our microbiome needs to be balanced to defend and recover, as well as repairing the skin and regulating excessive inflammation.

By working with Pr. Hattori, from Waseda University, Sōdai in Japan, Lancôme researchers were able to make a huge discovery: The skin microbiome changes as we age.

Our unique microbiome can be harmed by our lifestyle and environmental conditions such as UV rays, pollution, diet, hormones and medications. This can lead to spots, ageing, dryness and wrinkles.

Lancôme scientists have found that women living in a polluted environment and display premature signs of ageing. They were then able to create the ultimate formula to act on the skin microbiome.

New Advanced Lancôme Génifique contains three plant or biotech-based prebiotics: Mannose, α-Glucooligosaccharides and β-Fructooligosaccharides.

The patented, self-loading dropper releases 30 million prebiotic and probiotic fractions at each application, with an addictive and weightless texture. It absorbs rapidly, and delivers immediate results.

It's the official opening of the glamorous red carpet season (YAY), So as well as having a good ol'stare at the gowns, we were all over the hair and makeup trends too. 

Which is why we were SO excited when makeup artist Fiona Stiles revealed EXACTLY how she created Lily Collins’ exquisite make-up look for the event.

The ever-lovely Lily is an ambassador for Lancôme, and so it was mainly their products used to achieve this beautiful look.

"What a dress! It was so beautiful and inspiring… We wanted to do a look that was beautiful but also bold and modern. It’s such a modern look, and Lily pulled it off incredibly,” Fiona told us.

Fiona also talked us through how exactly she achieved the look, and what products she used…


"After prepping the skin with Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate Serum, I lightly evened out Lily’s skin with Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long 24H Wear Foundation in  and brightened with the Lancôme Effacernes Concealer."

"Keeping the look light and fresh was paramount so I used Lancôme Blush Subtil in Apluma on the cheeks for that timeless, romantic feel."

Eyes and eyebrows:

"Lily’s brows are so incredible, so I mostly leave them alone. I just filled in the arches ever so slightly using the Fiona Stiles Beauty Micro-Precision Brow Pencil."

"On the eyes, I used the Lancôme Blush Subtil in Aplum dusted over it to create a wash of colour on the eyes. Under the brows, I used Lancôme Hypnôse pallete in Fraîcheur Rosée to blend the colours."

"She has stunning lashes, so a coat or two of mascara does the trick. Using the jet black Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara gave the perfect flirty lash. I skipped the bottom lashes to keep the look fresh."


"Last but not least, I wanted the lips to be powdery matte, just an intense stamp of red, so I used the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in Souvenir Shade and dusted a touch of loose powder to take away any shine from the lip."

There you have it ladies, seems simple enough right? 


Another day, another amazing beauty launch, right?

The gorgeous humans at Lancôme have launched their "Oh My Rose!" spring collection, which is inspired by "the sophisticated style of elegant Parisian interiors". 


Ok, so @lancomeofficial's new #AbsolutelyRose highlighter is the prettiest beauty product we've ever seen

The most amazing product in this collection is the new highlighter, which is shaped like a rose. 

The La Rose á Poudrer is by far the most decadent highlighter we have ever seen… and we want one. 


Сенсационная пудра-хайлайтер из весенней коллекции Absolutly Rose, Lancome, взорвавшая инстаграм, в жизни оказалась еще краше, чем на фото. Мы так и не поняли, из чего сделаны ее лепестки, покрытые тончайшими перламутровыми и пудровыми частицами. Но они достаточно прочны и упруги, поэтому подозреваем, что из особой ткани. Эффект же средство дает очень деликатный, сатиновый, без нарочитого блеска. Обладает тонким ароматом розы #потомучтоэтокрасиво #бьютиуловдня #бьютиновость #новостикрасоты #lancome #lancomerussia #makeup #beautynews #springcollection #beautyeditor #beautybloger @lancome_ru @lancomeofficial

The buildable highlighting powder is lodged within the delicate petals of the pink rose, so you simply have to swirl your brush gently across the flower, and BOOM… highlight heaven.

This luxurious hightlighter will be available online in the next few weeks, and will set you back €50.
